Mhlumeni Bush Camp

Mhlumeni Bush Camp is situated on a gently undulating plateau overlooking the dramatic Mhlabashana gorge. Bounded on the three sides by the Mlawula Nature Reserve, the area has outstanding hiking and ecotourism potential. The Mhlumeni Community tented camp and camping area has magnificent sunrise views over the Mozambican Coastal plains to the North and on the west sunset vistas of the Swaziland low veld towards Mlawula

Mhlumeni offers luxury tented and camping options both with separate shared ablution and kitchen/ dining facilities. All camping spaces have braai and water facilities and can accommodate a total of up to 40 tents. The four luxury canvas tents all have views to the west and sleep three (3) people each with bed linen and towels provided. Mhlumeni camp has no electricity but solar and paraffin lanterns are used for lighting the night.

Traditional menus are prepared by Camp staff and guests have options to self- cater. Nature and cultural walks offered to visitors by trained community guides. Learn about endemic plants of the Lubombo and medicinal uses thereof from a local Sangoma (Traditional Healer), and do not miss out on the opportunity to hike to the amazing waterfall in the area.

The neighbouring communities of Mhlumeni in Swaziland and Goba in Mozambique are collaborating on a cross- border trail that forms the Northern anchor point of the Lubombo Eco Trail.

The Goba community 60 km west of Maputo allocated 9 000hactares as conservation space. The area features mountain streams and waterfalls surrounded by rugged hills and savanna woodland with large Marula trees. A local community environmental Organisation, Ntava Yedzu (Our Mountain’) manages the Goba Tourism initiative.

Visitors can overnight at the Goba campsite and hike up to the official Goba/Mhlumeni Border crossing. The mildly strenuous+_12km trail takes hikers over the Lubombo providing stunning 360degree views with the Indian Ocean breeze at your back before entering Swaziland. A border lunchbreak with meals prepared by the local ladies and a beer from the local store energise hikers for the rest of the gently sloping trail. Mhlumeni community camp welcomes weary hikers with amazing sunset views, traditional dancers and a hearty home cooked meal.
